The Mitato Farm Mushrooms Pleurotus mushroom culture premises are located in the village of Sounio, in the Prefecture of Xanthi, Thrace. The location has been selected based on strict environmental and microclimate criteria for growing mushrooms with stringent sanitary conditions to reduce the risk of contamination during the production and packaging process.
The organic chaff of hard-grained wheat is the substrate (where mushrooms grow) for the Pleurotus mushroom, and is specially processed and kept under high hygiene standards (on-site sampling tests, with physicochemical analyses in accredited laboratories), to guarantee its optimal condition, while being enriched in nutritional value in an eco-friendly way, replacing the chemical fertilizers in the same way this happens in nature, where the Pleurotus mushrooms grow on trees. In fact, these same conditions are provided in a simple container of compacted chaff to enrich its nutritional value.
TOUR AND TASTING
The tour consists of a company presentation, a visit to the plant, to the environmental management of the mushroom substrate residue, as well as a guided tour of the packing facilities.
A tasting session follows while visitors can make their purchases from the company’s retail store.
